My answer is E

(1) p is greater than 2 so p could be 3, 5, 7.....Insufficient
(2) p could be 11...so s^2 will be divisible by 11, but s^3 will not. Insufficient.

(1) + (2) still not sufficient based on above as p could be 3 and 11...

E for me

(1) p=3 and p=5 then NS

(2) 11 divides 99 but it doesn't 999. 3 does for both. NS

(1) and (2). 11 divides 99 but it doesn't 999. 3 does for both. NS
